    my buddy called me to pick him up the other day he said he "blew the motor" in his car...
    it's a 93 del sol with a d16z6, we started to tear into it yesterday mornin and first thing i found his stock exhaust mani was cracked clean open...
    he drains the oil no anti freeze in it but the car puffed white smoke...?
    i thought maybe he cracked the head...
    another weird thing its a d16z6 non vtec i thought they were all vtec?
    So if its a cracked head we're gonna slap a d16y8 head on it junkyard turbo and cam it... so whats what...?:confused::confused:

    Not all of the single-cam VTEC heads have the "VTEC" emblem on them. Look for the solenoid to be sure. Also, it's possible that someone swapped the head out for a non-VTEC one...

    Word. A few years ago my friend thought his head got swapped out before he bought it and was pissed. I pointed to the solenoid and told him to calm down.

    we just pulled the car back out it has just sat there since my last post... he moved off to a diff. school and left his car, he's back now and we just started again... btw the reason for no vtec was a burnt up vtec solenoid... and what happened to the car was the timing tensioner broke and threw the head to shit but he just sent it off to have a rebuild on it...:cool:

    the white smoke was probably because there was no antifreeze..
    my radiator had a crack in it a while back, thus having little or no coolant, and it overheated and puffed white smoke.
